    good round for apartment living

    Hey guys

    Im new to concealed carry. Taking my class on august 7th.

    My question is what is a good .40 cal round that has good stopping ability and expands well enough but wont go through the bad guy and into the next apartment. I have a glock 27.


    any advice is much apreciated.

    .40 Smith & Wesson, Glaser Blue Safety Slug , 115 Grain Pre Fragmented Jacketed Bullet, 6 Pack.

    The Glaser Safety Slug was designed for close quarter security. The Safety Slug bullet minimizes the likelihood that there will be over penetration as well as reducing the possibility of a ricochet on hard surfaces while still causing significant soft tissue destruction. This makes it a very good choice for personal protection whether in the home or working security in close quarters.

    The Blue Safety Slug contains #12 bird shot. It produces immediate energy dispersal, creating abrupt stopping power. It is optimally designed for warmer climates and lighter clothing.

    I do not believe that any particular bullet can overcome a shooter's ability to put a round on target. Become proficient at putting a round on target in a defensive situation, THEN worry about which round to use.

    Shot placement first...

    Then, which bullet

    just my opinion

    Didn't do too well in the Box O'Truth test:

    Glaser Blue Safety Slug tests better. About the same cost.

    Course I live in a house but it faces the street here and there are a lot of cars that go by. My immediate focus is to end the threat. Sure you are supposed to know what is beyond your target. That being said, my first focus is to end the threat. The chances of you hitting a neighbor in the next apartment at the exact time you fire to end a threat is small but it is real. Just part of the responsibility of being a legal gun owner. Just keep training and if it ever happens you will do what you need to do.

    I would say any good Self Defense "Fragmentation" bullet should do well.. I understand your concern. Most modern Apartments are built like cracker boxes and IF you should miss, you don't want to kill your neighbors..
    Take the point to heart that practice and accurate shooting should be #1 on your list, but a bullet that won't go through 3 apartments IF you should miss should be a considerations
    (although I'm sure I'll take heat for the statement)..

    Sir, no heat from me at all....... bullet type for a given situatiion is important, but to me, putting bullet selection before shooting proficiency, is like a teenager telling mom and dad what car he wants before he learns to drive.

    Exclamation The good news is...

The other posters are quite correct that shot placement is the key to success. The bottom line is be prepared to defend yourself no matter what you carry.
